Spring/ Summer '13 'One-To-Watch', Ming-Pin Tien 9 years’ of experience has seen him work with one of Taiwan’s most popular boutiques, as well as assisting womenswear designer Jolin Wu. The Taiwanese born designer recently graduated from London College of Fashion’s Fashion Design & Technology MA course with a collection titled “Metaphorical Distance”.

The minimal colour palette of his graduate collection- with its unusual shapes- showed potential and innovation. It is his focus on pattern cutting that has made his work so interesting, showing true craftsmanship in his creativity. Bringing the conceptual to life, it is his skill for turning the abstract into reality with details that make him somebody to watch out for in the fashion industry.

Ming-Pin Tien will show his new collection on the catwalk as part of the Ones To Watch showcase on Saturday 15th September.
